The Libertarian Party (Kalhan: Hișeaton Eri) is a political party in Kalșeri. It is currently represented in the House of Representatives.

The current party is the third iteration of a libertarian party in Kalșeri; the first was the Libertarian Party, founded in 1974 by economist Iakob Saint-Vincent and dissolved in 1986, and the second being the Libertarian Unity Party (LUP), which lasted from 1993 to 1999. Initially regarded as a fringe party, the Libertarian Party has gained traction in the latter half of the 2010's, almost overtaking the Liberal Democratic Party as the second-most voted political group in the 2019 presidential election. This rise in popularity was also because some important Liberal Democrats, as well as some of the more liberal Social Cooperationists, defected to the Libertarian Party throughout the 2010s. In June 2020, activist Fulgencio Hasenkamp was appointed Secretary of the Party.

Throughout its existence, the party has often sided with the Liberal Democrats over most economic issues, and with the Social Cooperationists over most social issues.

The party has been the target of criticism for its seemingly ambiguous position on child pornography. In 2017, Feynman addressed the point on Twitter, stating that the Party would never allow itself to support child pornography or pedophilia. Following the statement, several journalists have commented that the Party's censorship phase-out clause may give way to a legal distribution of lolicon and shotacon material; Feynman chose not to respond to the comments. Some representatives from the Party declared that as long as actual children or overly realistic depictions of children were not involved, the Libertarian Party "had no reason to censor such material".

Similarly, the Party's program contains no mention of bestiality. When confronted about the abstention of the Party on the Sexual Interspecies Relations Act of 2018, which reiterated the de facto ban on bestiality in Kalșeri, Feynman said that "[f]rom a personal point of view, [he] could not bring [him]self to support zoophilia, but imposing a full-on prohibitory stance goes against the very principle of the Libertarian Party." Since then, the Party has maintained its silence on the matter, leaving freedom of choice to the members.

Another point of contention for the party is the round of mandatory vaccinations for joining the Armed Forces and upon entering the first year of primary school: several high-ranking members within the party called for these requirements to be scrapped, stating that being forced to undergo vaccinations against one's will is a violation of basic human rights. The Party has also been criticized for seemingly wanting to phase out mandatory education for the same reason.

In November 2020, House spokesperson John Hellwig was detained by the police for possession of "problematic material featuring minors", and subsequently resigned as Representative.
